Ivelisse Won't Go Into MMA, Despite Having Debut Planned Twice

Lucha Underground star Ivelisse recently spoke to WPW Weekly for a new interview. You can check out the full podcast at this link, and submitted highlights below:

Ivelisse Talks About Relationship with Stone Cold Steve Austin: It’s been a very long time since I’ve talked to him but he is definitely a big supporter of my work and that meant the world to me. Growing up he was always my favourite character. And when I went to Tough Enough and I met him; in my mind, I was like ‘ok, don’t act like a fan, this is work, your business’. So, the fact that he appreciated my work that was incredibly exciting for me. And through the years he has backed me up and that means a lot to me.

Ivelisse Talks About Getting into MMA: I actually twice was going to debut before the whole Tough Enough thing, before WWE I was actually training in Chicago and I was going to debut for my team and the entertainment company over there was called Fight Card Entertainment and I had been training for 8 or 9 months to debut and then the Tough Enough thing happened…. Then after WWE I was like ‘maybe now I can go at it’. And I was actually going to be training here (Florida)... and then go to Chicago and debut again. But, of course, TNA Gut Check came up. At this point, I’ll just leave it as my side learning and training because I’ve always loved MMA.

Ivelisse Gives Her Dream Match List: For people, I have wrestled before that I would like to wrestle again, I would say Madison Eagles. I think she is friggin awesome and I would love to have more matches with her.And for people, I have not wrestled, I would like to wrestle Asuka because we have different wrestling styles and I think it would be really cool.
